    its what delphin460 said or you just don't have sources for your file.

    remember: your download speed depends on the # of sources for it and their upload speed, anddon't be fooled by whatyou see in the search window they are not an indication of who is available for connection so change supernodes to see if you get lucky, also use localized supernodes, also try changing ports, and lower your upload bandwidth,remove the no ip sources from your dat files and see if it helps , and if you have a router you need to get kanat

    please do a test,search for van halen’s “right now” and wait untill you get 30 or more sources and then pick for download and tell me what you get make sure your traffic is paused or clean

    That just sucks doesn't it?
    (they should remove this smiley from the board,it's far too aggresive )

    Anyway,All i can say is that you should do a search for the same file again.
    Keep searching and searching for more sources(in the searchfield,not traffic screen)...keep searching till no new sources are added anymore.
    And it's not because the tenth search doesn't ad sources anymore,that the eleventh search won't ad new sources either(if you know what i mean).
    For bigger files you should only start your download after the search can't find more sources for it.
    This will/might help in getting your download start of sooner,instead of searching for more sources while it's allready in the trafficscreen.
    And also jump supernodes yaddayaddayadda...if you find that it's going slow

    Hope this helps a bit
    B)

    hmm...asspie

    did that to show you that the files you are talking about have no sources
